New feature in the Addy Indy: Pet tributes
Following requests from several readers as well as from our friends at Homeward Bound in Middlebury, we have developed a new feature that we are proud to unveil in today’s edition of the Addison Independent.
Our new Pet Tributes gives families who lose their beloved pets a place to share their news with other readers of the paper and compose an obituary-like piece that memorializes their lost companion.
Click here to read our first tribute, to a dog named Skippy Jon Jones.
Pet Tributes will run on our Monday Pet Pages as frequently as they are received. Submissions can be made through a form on our website, addisonindependent.com, or by emailing them to us at [email protected].
These are paid submissions that cost 25 cents per word. Photos add an additional flat cost of $15. Pet Tributes will be formatted in a standard and uniform way on the page and will run in the next Monday paper available after receipt of the tribute.
If you are not a typical subscriber to the paper, we are happy to mail a copy of the paper to you in which your Pet Tribute appears at no additional charge.
As a pet-friendly business that knows intimately the fullness that pets can bring to our lives, we are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity for pet owners to honor their pal following that sad day when they have to leave us.
We welcome any questions or suggestions as we unveil this new project, directed to Christy Lynn at [email protected] or 388-4944.
